Next up maybe a 3-4 game losing streak.

Could be.

Especially with the Angles coming to town arguably one of the 3 best teams in all of baseball. Not to mention our banged up starting pitching staff that hasn't quite lived up to expectations this year even when healthy.

2 games back with 60 to go maybe we can pull this out maybe not!

Should be fun either way! Twins ball gotta love it!

Well, with the way the Twins starters have pitched, maybe this is exactly what this team needed...new arms in the rotation!! We owe the Angels a good thumping and I see it happening at home. The Twins will make it interesting, as they always do, down the stretch run.

Nice to see that the twins pitchers got what they were asking for a couple runs and some great "D" to get a broom out for the white sox WTG twins

And no comments yet from the Chisox side. I thought there were several Sox backers that would contribute. laughlaugh

I was at the games last night and Monday night. Gotta say, our boys played good all around. Good pitching against a great hitting team (how about Duensing last night? Great job!), timely hitting, especially the bottom of the line up and outstanding defense.

I also gotta say, man, is the Sox defense aweful!!! Throw down to second base on the steal attempt last night ends up in center field. Three throws to first Monday night end up in the dugout. I even started to feel sorry for Konerko after that.

It's good to be back home ain't it? Heck, we might even win one two from the Angles.

Yeah, the starting pitching...duct tape and baling wire...barely hanging on.

Darn nice to see the bottom of the order putting the ball in play and running around the bases.

We were just saying the same thing the other night and I think the outfield is even worse defensively than the infield is.

Like that pop fly that bounced about 5 feet in front of Dye last night, with just a tad bit of hustle, he shoulda had it. He made absolutely no effort going after that ball.

Also entertaining watching them hustle (NOT!) down the line on a routine ground ball. Gardy would have half that team sitting on the bench with their half a$$ed attempts to beat the throw to first base.

I can't believe Guillen puts up with that stuff.

I like his quote: "I can't wait to see those piranhas swimming in a different lake next year," "I want to see these piranhas hitting in 20 below [zero]."

It was funny when AJ got into it in the dougout with alexi rameirez after the throw to second went into center. i think both that instance and last nights were both ramierez's fault, he flat out wasnt in position to catch the ball.

I would have liked to have seen that brawl rameirez was going after AJ and was restrianed. Rameirez looks to be about 65lbs soaking wet!

their defense really struggled.

I liked the play on Gomez's bunt when he almost beat it out.

It shouldn't have even been close. The Twins speed really psyces out the Chisox.

but the white sox spend more money than the twins and they sign free agents, so they should be better... right?

In fairness it's just a different style of Baseball and fielding in the Dome isn't all that easy.

Back to the Gaff's..LOL

In the first game of the series Mauers flyball double to left field that posednick totally misplayed really helped us win that one and gave us the MO! in the series!

Um...they did win a world series a few years back when most of their big free agents were still in their prime. Plus we own them in the dome.

Hello Boys!

Just got back from our annual two week trip to Cass Lake. Enjoy the sweep? I thought you would. What I enjoyed was the free meal at the Pike Hole Bar compliments of Steve the owner who made the foolish bet with me on the outcome of last seasons baseball battle between the Twinks and my Beloved Pale Hose! Guess who was eating free? Senior Windy would be the correct answer!!!

We made another bet this year but he took off the stipulation of winning the division as both teams look to be struggling so we went with best record for the same wager next year....Ah I can taste the free 2/3 Lb Pike Holer burger already! LOL

KMR85 you are correct on both accounts! We did win the whole enchilada a few years back and you do own us...In the dome but that won't last too much longer. I wonder how the pirannahs will swim in the bigger fish tank and drop the temperature about 20 degrees??? Time will tell.

So I get back and see that my beloved have weathered the storm and are still a few games ahead of the Twinks and just a few behind the Kitties, just were I would have hoped to be. Keep it close until Mr Peavy gets healthy and then put the peddle to the metal and cruise into the playoffs!

Hey Windy welcome back. Hope you caught some fish and a buzz at Cass. Yes the SWEEP of your beloved Sux. I think Ozzie wanted to sit in our dugout on game 2 and 3. He really does like the Twins.

Also liked his comment about the steroid list "bring it out and lets get this over with.

The we fall apart at home against LA. What a smoking that was. OOOOOUCH.

It will be a 3 team race right to the end.

Okay seen it.

Hey windy. I'll give you my 11 year old's email address. He read the report and felt bad. He has a few walleye catching pointers for you.

Hey Sled,

We caught a ton of walleye, just too many were 13" and I will not keep a small fish. I hate to say I am in the minority as I saw a ton of 12 and 13" fish in the fish house. All total in two weeks we caught and kept 5 walleye that ran 16-18" and about a dozen 14" that made it into our family fish fry. We must have released about a hundred dinks! Went after pike instead. Getting ready to pickle my second batch. Used the pickling solution from the first batch to make some pickled eggs. I will be up at Cass Lake next year from July 24th to August 8th and would invite you and your son to join me and Brian for a day of walleye catching. Your boat against our boat, lets say a $100 per fish over 14" kept? Interested?

I dunno man. If anyone found out I went to Cass for walleyes, it would seriously damage my reputation. Save your money next year and use it to drive a couple hours to PRIME Minnesota walleye waters. I might be willing to part with some info on how and where to have good days of fishing.

    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
    • We are on Lake Edward at WildWoods RV resort just north of Merrifield, MN. It is nice just driving up, unlocking it, playing for the weekend and locker her back up and leaving the frig on.  They let Atheists and Jesus freaks all in!
    •   My wife and I are starting to think about parking ours someplace. I'm tired of trying to get reservations and having to hook and unhook and all that goes with a weekend of camping. Plus I would like to have the toys available like 4-wheeler and boat.   We are looking at places up north. We know several people and like the Emily-Outing-Remer-Hill City area. I think you a further west, right? Brainerd area maybe?
